The sit involves looking after our house and garden while we are in the UK.  We live in old, rural Spain in a small hamlet tucked away in the hills, but only 8 minutes from the motorway. It is a 30 minute drive to the beautiful beaches and stunning scenery of Cabo de Gata Natural Park, Mojacar, Agua Amarga etc and 2 hours from Granada.  Our last housesitters loved it so much that they have come back and are renting a house around the corner!

The house is spacious and comfortable, and the garden is on three levels with fairly steep steps between them. There are beautiful mountain views from the house, especially from the top terrace where there's a 360 degree panorama. The local village, 2 km away, has a bar - open all year - and a swimming pool, which is open in school holidays, but no shop.

This would suit a couple or a single person who loves peace and quiet. It would be ideal if you have your own transport, but if not we can negotiate use of our car while you are here.  It is not possible to be here without transport. It does get very hot here in the summer, though the house stays relatively cool.  We have an excellent internet connection.

The main responsibility is watering the garden, which takes around an hour every evening.  We would prefer house-sitters with some experience of and love for gardening.  You will be able to harvest some crops while you are here.  We have a pond requiring a small amount of maintenance, with about 30 goldfish that will need feeding every day.
